“Attack the Block” was one of last year's best films and more evidence that we may be living in a new Golden Age of genre films - what might very loosely be referred to as B movies. The story concerns a group of London gang members and civilians who unite to fight off an alien invasion on Guy Fawkes Night. The aliens are furry, sharp-toothed monsters with glowing eyes; they may seem unbeatable, but they chose the wrong apartment project to invade. It's a nice enough transfer, with a strong sound mix. The package includes a lot of extras: Start with the three commentary tracks, all with writer/director Joe Cornish, talking to the teenage cast members, then with the older cast members, and finally with executive producer Edgar Wright, director of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”.

The man, 20-year-old Robert William White, was arrested Thursday after barricading himself inside his apartment.

Amid the terror and mayhem that paralyzed one of the world’s largest cities last week, more than 170 people were brutally murdered by terrorists. Among those killed during the attack on Mumbai, India, were my colleague and dear friend, Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, and his wife, Rivkah, the directors of the local Chabad House. This was not only an attack on a rabbi or a Jewish center; it was an attack on anyone who — like the Holtzbergs — values the ideals of peace, goodness and kindness.

On Saturday, April 19, “weed abatement” began in Glenoaks Canyon as several men attacked property on the undeveloped ridge between the Canyon and Eagle Rock. I watched one man cutting green grass down to the surface of the ground. Nothing remained when he finished. The pamphlet issued by the Glendale Fire Prevention Bureau on “Fire Hazard Reduction Guidelines” states that, for areas 30 to 100 feet from the house: “Grasses and small shrubs may be left as high as 18 inches from the ground on steep slopes for slope stability purposes.” The grass clearance I witnessed was being performed on a steep slope more than 100 feet from the nearest house.

The last defendant in a saga of more than four years involving the torture and kidnapping of two loan modification agents in Glendale was sentenced Wednesday to six years in state prison.

He had entered a guilty plea to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with great bodily harm more than a year ago, but that was held as he completed a ministry program while he was jailed, said Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Suzette Clover in a Pasadena courtroom.

An 18-year-old Tujunga man was slashed Wednesday by a knife-wielding man in Glendale, who police said attacked him for no apparent reason. The victim suffered a minor cut on his right forearm for which he refused treatment, Glendale spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said. However, he later requested to be transported to Glendale Adventist Medical Center to be treated for a headache. The knife-wielding man fled before police arrived on the scene. The victim reportedly didn't know why the man attacked him because he had never seen him before the incident, she said.

A bobcat was spotted walking toward the wash near Rosemont and Mayfield avenues in Montrose Wednesday morning, a day after officials from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife held a meeting informing La Crescenta residents how to avoid and handle potential encounters with wild cats, coyotes and bears. By the time Crescenta Valley Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene on Wednesday, however, the cat was gone. Tuesday's public meeting - a joint project of wildlife officials and the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station - was spurred by the death of a pet dog named Bridgett, who was killed in late November by a mountain lion in a La Crescenta backyard.
